the league may see things differently. from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1 a in rockefeller plaza. welcome to "today." it's a thursday morning. do we need an instant replay. >> this is the calgary flames. i think that accident might earn him a couple of days off. >> we will have more on that in just a moment. our top story on a thursday morning, the donald trumpless republican debate a day away. so far trump isn't budging. it is add ag new wringal to the already wild race. we have it covered with peter alexander.
7:02 am
venue for tonight's debate with or without donald trump. a source familiar with the situation tells nbc news that fox news ceo reached out to trump through the women in his life trying to see whether his decision to skip the debate is a done deal indonald trump betting he is bigger than fox news. the republican front runner will be in des moines tonight but not at the final gop debate instead touting a special event for veteran veterans. late wednesday trump differented his boycott on fox news. >> they came out with this ridiculous pr statement like drawn up by a child. >> host bill o'reilly all but begged the billionaire to reconsider, appealing to his
7:03 am
>> forgive, go forward, answer the questions, look out for the folks. just want you to consider it. >> trump refusing to back down. >> even though you and i had an agreement that you wouldn't ask me that, which we did, i will therefore forget that you asked me that. >> here in iowa -- >> if gentle donald cannot handle megyn kelly. >> reporter: ted cruz hasn't given up on his dual even naming a time and place. tell >> whether we are in fact concerned or saying what is expedient to get elected. >> reporter: chris christie calling trump's move a mistake. >> i think anytime you get a
7:04 am
to 20 million people watching in an election campaign you should take it. >> reporter: jeb bush telling reporters i have a $20 bet he shows up. rushing to defense, rush limbaugh. >> he knows he is owning the entire event by not showing up. >> reporter: he praised megyn kelly in 2011 discussing a debate trump was trying to host going viral. >> do you think you are a better moderator than i am? i could never beat you. that would not be close. you have done a great job, by the way, and i mean it. >> reporter: obviously that relationship has gone souktth since. our new poll shows trump in first place ahead of ted cruz in iowa by seven points.
7:05 am
to 20 points. remember no non-incumbent republican president has ever won iowa and new hampshire. >> let's bring in nicole wallace who served as an adviser to the mccain/palin campaign. do you think donald trump has a change of heart and shows up tonight? >> i would say maybe before the o'reilly interview. >> if he is not there physically, will he be there as a presence in some sense? >> when you are up as far as he is in the polls you are always going to be there. they are all still running against him. >> isn't the lunacy of this -- donald trump says he is angry over that statement that fox news put out a couple of days ago saying it sounded as it was written by a child and mocked him. this is donald trump, running an
7:06 am
people and using childish words like "loser." >> megyn kelly's original sin in the mind of donald trump is she asked him if he was a war against women. what is interesting to me is that donald trump is engaged in a hot war against fox news' most prominent woman. the universal consensus is it is show strength but i think it can show a weakness when women start evaluating him as commander in chief. >> on the fox side, she has been victimized by the words of donald trump over the last six months. how do you think she must feel watching bill o'reilly trying to get donald trump to give them forgiveness? >> probably a twilight zone point in her career. she is tough. i think the fact that fox news stood by her is an important one.

place would hope their work place would stand by them. this is the highest stakes war he has started and i'm not sure if he will win in the end. >> if you love trump you love -- >> and plenty of people do. >> if you don't like trump it is petulant and icky. >> the sliver gets bigger should he emerge as the republican party's nominee and have to appeal to a general electort it will have to change the way he combats people he doesn't agree with. he is treating megyn kelly as an enemy combattant because she dared to ask him a question he didn't like.
7:08 am
>> you said donald trump will be there whether physically or not. doesn't this change the focus to ted cruz? aren't the other candidates on that stage going to level their attacks on him? >> they might but the other campaigns, i checked in with all of them last night, they are barely concealing their enthusiasm for a debate not dominated by questions for trump. trump had the best moment of his campaign when he stood in defense of new york values at the last campaign. it is a missed opportunity for trump and one the other campaigns are looking forward to. >> thanks very much. nice to see you. >> there is a bit of debate drama on the democratic side, as well. should more be added. hillary clinton and bernie sanders are weighing in as their race in iowa gets closer. andrea mitchell is in des moines this morning. >> reporter: right you are, there is a debate over debate from a democratic side. we'll get to that in a moment.

7:12 am
jailed leader ammon bundy. >> to those at the refuge, i love you. let us take the fight from here. >> reporter: the number of militants is dwindling as law enforcement sets up road blocks and check points. >> it is time for everybody in this illegal occupation to move on. >> reporter: 11 of the group's leaders are behind bars. seven of them appeared in federal court each facing a federal charge. they took control of the refuge demanding the release of ranchers convicted of setting fires on federal land. this week the militants were arrested along a rural highway during a violent confrontation of authorities that ended in the death of occupier lavoy finicum. >> they had ample opportunity to leave the refuge. as the fbi and our partners demonstrated actions are not without consequences.
7:13 am
offered few details but a senior law enforcement official tells nbc news one vehicle hit a snow bank and finicum emerged with a firearm and was shot and killed. mark mcconnell says he was at the scene and while he didn't see the shooting he was told by a witness that finicum charged police. conflicting accounts are circulating saying finicum's hands were in the air. the rancher was remembered in a candle light vigil. this morning it is unclear how many militants remain at the refuge. because of the check points no new members can join and anyone >> thanks. thousands of people who come to rely on their local wal-mart store will have to find somewhere else to shop.
7:14 am
this is going to have a big impact. >> it will be very tough. a lot of places where walmart hires hundreds of people and often small local stores are put out of business. some of those walmarts are closing leaving people unemployed and residents with no place to shop. >> reporter: it is devastating for a lot of people. right now many are the only grocery and pharmacy around. and in some places closing the store would leave behind a food desert. >> when you don't have the transportation or the means to get to where you need to get to it will hurt. >> reporter: the pain will be widespread. walmart is shutting down 154 stores in 27 states and puerto rico creating food deserts in three states, alabama, arkansas and kansas. >> they are packing up and leaving the town high and dry.
7:15 am
small grocery store in oriental. walmart came to oriental forcing her to board up her store. now walmart is closing and many residents are bitter. >> they knew they were leaving. it has been within three months. >> reporter: it is a similar story in many towns. in italy, texas where the town's only pharmacy in the walmart is closing today. >> why go to expense of building a building and then all of a sudden -- >> reporter: a spokesman from walmart said we never want to walk away from the opportunity to serve customers. we share the community's disappointment. >> i don't like it at all. it makes it inconvenient. i love this store. >> walmart says it is committed to opening 300 stores in the so-called food desert areas and
